Cardinals fire Steve Wilks after 1 season as head coach

Cardinals fire Steve Wilks after 1 season as head coach

Rookie Josh Rosen has been set up for failure this season, as he's thrown 10 touchdowns and 14 interceptions under a less than desirable offensive scheme. "It's just one of those games where you got to come out and put your best foot forward even though you already know you're in the playoffs and do the best you can to make it a game".

Seattle looked the part of a team that wrapped up its postseason berth a week ago with an emotional shootout victory over Kansas City and had little to play for. Russell Wilson got sacked six times and a litany of special teams mistakes allowed the hapless Cardinals to stick around far longer than expected. First, he became the third player to ever enter the NFL's 1,300-reception club, joining Jerry Rice and Tony Gonzalez. He started 13 of the 14 games he has played for the Seahawks, recording 24 combined tackles and two sacks.

The Seahawks managed to hang on for a 27-24 win against the lowly Cardinals who lost 13 of their 16 games this season. They came to play and that was nice to see. Wilson's pass to Tyler Lockett at the 25 yard line meant that the Seahawks were in prime position to take the lead and the win in the closing seconds of the game. "No matter what the record depicts", Seattle defensive end Frank Clark said. The dynamic duo of Carson and Davis produced a 98 yard drive with a resulting touchdown in just 5 plays. Dennis Gardeck deflected a punt deep in Seattle territory and in the third quarter fell on another blocked punt in the end zone for a touchdown.

Seahawks kicker Sebastian Janikowski kicked the 33-yard. game-winning field goal as time expired.

Mediterranean diet named No. 1 eating plan for 2019
Although created to help people lose weight, experts say its focus on healthier living makes it a smart overall diet to follow. The eating plan features a wide variety of options, including fruits and vegetables , whole grains, nuts, poultry, and fish.

Seattle will have one big question going into next week after starting cornerback Shaquill Griffin left in the first half with a twisted right ankle injury and did not return. Griffin appeared to take an awkward step on the sideline pushing Fitzgerald out of bounds, and after being looked at on the sideline never returned.

Cardinals: Arizona is on the clock for the No. 1 pick in the National Football League draft.

And while that wasn't always evident in the win over Arizona, the Seahawks did get a clearer idea of where they need to be better facing Dallas in the NFC wild-card game Saturday.
